Court ordered anything isnt really a rationalization and learning experience. He will just smile, nod, and answer the questions he has to and will be boozing it up the moment he gets out of the fancy rubber room.
Of course it's not court ordered. He's a first-time offender. But it wasn't exactly a personal choice, either. It was offered in lieu of continuing his court case. Obviously, he can't just vanish for 30 days and blow off any future court appearances. He made a deal.
